Italian Film Festival!

The APO was invited this year to give a concert of film music at the gala opening of the New Mexico Italian Film Festival on February 10th at the Kimo Theater. We read the music for the first time at Monday night's rehearsal, and there is some really nice stuff from Henry Mancini, Nino Rota, Ennio Morricone and others. Themes from The Godfather, La Dolce Vita, The Mission, and Cinema Paradiso, to name a few. The list of films looks excellent so, if you can, get tickets and check it out! Proceeds benefit the UNM Children's Hospital. See you there!
